Toy Fair Dallas: Get Your 2019 Holiday Drivers and 2020 Previews in Front of Key Retail Buyers
July 1, 2019 | Toy companies looking to showcase their 2019 holiday hits and new and innovative product lines for fourth quarter 2020 to key global retailers are encouraged to register for Toy Fair Dallas, taking place Wednesday, October 2 to Friday, October 4 in Dallas, TX.
Produced by The Toy Association, the annual show consistently draws influential mass, long-lead, and specialty buyers to the Dallas Market Center, looking to preview compelling toys and games more than a year in advance of in-store delivery and to see what is available for shelves this coming holiday season. To date, representatives from retailers including 7-Eleven, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Inc., BJ’s Wholesale, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Hallmark, Hobby Lobby, J.C. Penney, Macy’s, Michaels Stores, Staples, Spencer’s, Target, TJ Maxx/Marshalls, Office Depot, and more, plan to attend the marketplace. In addition, international distributors from Australia, Chile, Guatemala, Mexico, and Venezuela are also registered to see new trends and creative product lines for the 2019 and 2020 holiday seasons.
During the show, brand marketers and product development teams from toy companies of all sizes present their very best new toys – including STEM/STEAM toys, collectibles, action figures, dolls, building sets, arts & crafts, and licensed toys – to retail buyers in open, closed, or combination booths and showrooms. The show’s 2019 floorplan has been reconfigured to allow for easier navigation and to include an “Innovation Gallery” on the 13th floor. The area will provide exhibitors with additional exposure for their brands and buyers with more chances to view product. In addition, all attendees will have the opportunity to network and hear the latest news from experts about China, the changing face of retail, influencer marketing, STEM/STEAM, and more at the Innovation Gallery Drop-In Learning Theater.

With a refreshed look and feel, and expanded offerings and networking opportunities, this year’s Toy Fair Dallas will build on its continued success.”
